I recently flew Business Class in two of EGYPTAIR's aging Boeing 737-800s, one from BEY-CAI and one from CAI-BRU. The business class experience on EGYPTAIR is solidly average, offering dated but comfortable semi-reclining seats and reasonable overhead space. Underseat space is limited because of the mechanical kit of the seats. EGYPTAIR lounges are barely adequate. I visited three of them...

Seat width and leg room was adequate (but could always be larger). We selected our seats months ahead of time on their website, and selected a special meal. We did not get the seats we selected OR our special meals. Other than that, everything went smoothly on the way TO Cairo from JFK. They do not have an Economy Plus...

Took several Egypt Air flights during this trip (Cairo to Aswan, Aswan to Abu Simbel and back, Luxor to Cairo and Cairo to London). Our flights were nice - they did give our a pack of sugar cookies instead of the peanuts or pretzels you get on other airlines. I had booked our flight from Luxor to Cairo and Cairo...

This plane seats 3-3-3 in coach. Seats were a little wider than our last atlantic crossing with AA. Dinner and breakfast served. Good entertainment system in the headrest in front of you and hook ups for computer flash drive etc. Also ac plug under the seat. The planes are showing wear and tear. No liquor served, if you want a...

Boarding in JNB was pleasant, Business Class and Star Alliance Gold members received preferential treatment. On board, I was not convinced that the crew was excited to serve us. It was standard, they did they job. Opposite to other airlines from the Muslim world (i.e. Qatar or Emirates) Egyptair does not serve a glass of champaign to great business class...

Almost average, flight attendants barely smile, unlike all other airlines I use, and when they do it's too contrived I feel horrible. Food is ok, but can certainly improve alot. No blankets, lights nearly always on, bearing in mind takeoff was at 4AM ! And as usual, late !

Egyptair one of good operators in middle east but the problem they are using very old aircraft without any renewal. Lot of chairs have issues, only up front screen but even not good, sound is very noisy. All of those issues because of the aircraft needs simply to be renewed and maintained. On the other side, the staff are friendly...
